Moncrief Library

Off the foyer is the elegant Moncrief Library with shelves filled with many books from the Dane family’s library. The room showcases original hand-crafted artistry such as matchbook paneling of Circassian walnut paneling, high Moorish arcading along the ceiling, and period-style furnishings. It is an ideal space for small receptions, cocktail hours, and ceremonies.


Founder’s Hall

In the Founder’s Hall, a carved double staircase descends to a large room with oak-paneled walls set below a beamed and gilt ceiling, jutting stone casement windows, and teak flooring. Doors open to a gorgeous Founders Lawn.  Adding to the grandeur, the room hosts a fireplace and the pipes of an organ (the rest of which was donated in 1956 after a fire devestated Eliot Church in Newton Center).


The Ferry Foyer

The grand entrance to the estate, the Ferry Foyer is perfect for pre-­function cocktails and wedding portraits. Guests will admire the massive rustic granite and polished red marble fireplace, dark oak paneling, high ceilings, and carved gilt detail.  The original paired French doors lead out onto the adjacent terrace overlooking the beautiful grounds and the pond.


The Ferry Conference Room

The Ferry Conference Room can be used as a dressing room, storage room, or a kids room.


Founder’s Lawn

The Founder’s lawn is enhanced by spectacular rhododendron hedges. The sweeping lawn is well suited for an outdoor ceremony or a location for a tented reception.


Back Terrace

The back terrace overlooking the lush campus is a great location for a dramatic first look. It can also serve as a cocktail space.
